The L’Oréal Paris Paradise Mascara (£12 for 6.4 mL) is one of the newest mascara launches from the brand. The mascara is available in another form in the US called Lash Paradise Mascara. When looking into the ingredients there are some differences which I have marked with bold writing. The ones marked are not present in the other mascara.

Since the product first launched in the US I guess this is the orignial formula. I don’t see why they changed the formula as I don’t think silica (silicone dioxide) in the mascara could do any harm.
On their website they state that the mascara
– will give your lashes intense volume and length
– makes your lashes feel softer without any flaking
I think this mascara makes my lashes look beautiful! It does give them a lot of volume and a good amount of length. It keeps looking great on my lashes for a good amount of time but it does transfer to my skin beneath my brows which I find a lot of mascaras does. When trying out this mascara I got an allergic reaction to something in it so my eyes began to scratch the day after I have worn it and my eyelids turned red and dry. The first time I tried the mascara I tried a new eyeliner as well so I did not know what caused the reaction. But after a second try I got the same reaction again which is why I never will use this mascara again. I have not found anyone saying they had an allergic reaction as well. I don’t know what caused my reaction but if you are allergic to a lot of different things and have sensitive skin, then I would not recommend this product.
I will award this mascara 3 out of 5 hearts.
Even though I think this mascara looks gorgeous on the eyes I hate that it causes an allergic reaction. I don’t know what caused the reaction but I have sent them a message to hear if they know anything. So many people love this mascara so if you don’t have any known allergies then I think you would love this one as well. Have you tried the Paradise Mascara from L’Oréal Paris? If you have, then let me know your opinion in the comments!
